Spelman College to kick off WISDOM weekend

To mark its 10th anniversary, Spelman College’s WISDOM Center will kick off a year-long series of initiatives under the banner, “A Legacy of Women in Transformational Ministry,” this weekend on campus.

The WISDOM Center is a theological and vocational space dedicated to the intellectual, spiritual, and personal empowerment of students, alumnae, faculty and staff at Spelman College.

The celebration will begin Friday with an awards ceremony that will recognize President Beverly Daniel Tatum. The weekend will also include a women’s ministry conference, spoken word/gospel/jazz performances, a worship service, and the release of “If I Do What Spirit Says Do: Black Women, Vocation, and Community Survival,” an anthology of essays by theologians, religious scholars, preachers and community leaders who presented at the WISDOM Center’s 2006 global conference.
